Spot #1 No Cliche Sightseeings 

We are used to making picnics mostly at our home place. I suggest you to think the spots for picnicking when you travel. Add this activity in your to-do-list and discovery the cities from another perspective.

In Paris choose Luxembourg gardens or a classic field near Eiffel tower (even if it is a bit cliche, but it is a must! 🙂 ). Or try another thing – find an access to a rooftop and admire the Paris panoramic view with a glass of Chardonnay.

In Berlin choose Volkspark Rehberge with its 29 hectares of greens which offers some ideal romantic spots in the form of a breathtaking rose garden and a water park.

In London check London Fields – Broadway Market

Here you have two in one: a huge field for your company and a nearby market full of producers and  suppliers and which has recently become a new foodie destination in London.

In Kiev go to Taras Shevchenko park if you want to remain in the downtown. Or check some places out like Feofania park and Pyrohovo park, which basically is an open-air museum of Folk Architecture and Life of Ukraine made as a village. Also it is a spot of the major folklore celebrations.

In Madrid one of the most popular picnic spots is Parque del Buen Retiro, plenty of grassy areas. After your feast, walk around checking out the peaceful lake or the famous Palacio de Cristal, a building made of glass.

Spot #2 Dinner in White events

Participate in the most secret and chic dinner in white all around the world! It is enough to track where there will be the next event.

The “Diner en Blanc” (Dinner in White) appeared in  Paris 29 years around basically was a flash mob of people who secretly gathered all in white. The venue had to be communicated at the last moment so that the local authorities couldn’t intervene.

Now, this mass picnic occurs in beautiful, central, open-air spots in more than 70 cities in 35 countries around the world on different dates over the summer. There are just few rules: to buy a ticket (the scope is usually charity), bring a basket with all the necessary and of course be all in white.

So grab your basket for the next Dinner in white! The official website with the schedule is here. Btw in Budapest the dinner will take place September, 9th.

Spot # 3 Picnic at an outdoor concert

Picnic at an outdoor concert, musical or theatrical event can be a very good idea. For example in Kiev during a chain of concerts in the botanic garden, people took the baskets and wine. Isn’t it an amazing idea to picnic? A concert, a local symphony performance, an outdoor theater or theater performance in the park, and movies in the park, are all great places to enjoy picnicking.

Check the concerts in Hyde Park, London here.
Check out the September events in Amsterdam like Dutch Theatre festival, Amsterdam Heritage days and many mores here.
Don’t miss the nearest open-air concerts in Kiev the 2nd and 9th of September in Lavra and botanic garden. Check out the events here.
